      UPDATED - Studio Note & Rhymes with Play Streams Temporarily Canceled.   03/06/2020

      UPDATE (3/19/20): Just a quick note regarding the team at Klei Entertainment. As noted previously, everybody at Klei Entertainment is working from home due to the Covid-19 outbreak. Many of us have been working especially hard to help maintain operations as we all move out of the office and into our homes and with everything being done online, extra time must be spent in organizing conversations and trying to maintain communication. As some of you may know, we have a very open office and we are almost always in contact with each other as we go about our days. Some of us work across multiple teams and that work has become a bit more challenging for everybody.   That being said, at this time the transition has not caused any major disruption in our operations, but it would be overly optimistic to expect that we won't have any delays at all. We're going to have to be especially mindful about this in the coming weeks and make sure we don't take on too much work so we can keep things running smoothly.  We will let you know as we see how these changes affect our timelines.  Thanks UPDATE (3/10/20):
      The test yesterday went well. We got the whole office (mostly) to work from home without significant issue. As a result, Klei Staff that can work from home have been asked to do so until further notice.  This means that we will have to cancel the Rhymes with Play stream until we are all back in the office. This shouldn't affect anything else at least in the short term, but if things change I will update you all here.  Original Post: Hey everybody,  This Tuesday March 10th, 2020 the entire staff at Klei will be working remotely for 1 day in an effort to prepare the studio to work remotely for a little while if the need arises.  Klei is already set up pretty well to allow for working remotely, however we are going to have a one day "dry run" with the whole studio so that we can identify and avoid any issues or downtime that may arise should choose to implement a work from home policy due to COVID-19 outbreak concerns. Unfortunately this does mean that we will be canceling the “Rhymes with Play” Art stream this coming Tuesday, however unless the situation changes we expect everything at the studio to be back to normal Wednesday and we’ll continue our regular stream schedule Thursday March 12th. If the situation changes at all, we'll let you know. Thanks for your understanding.

  1. It's a question i have been carrying around for a while, since the updates stopped and the devs once mentioned more challenges having to do with the story, will we ever see Wilson escaping the Don't Starve world? The story still sort of feels uncomplete for me. It can't end like this, just with a loop of people being trapped in the throne. I've always thought that at some point you would make a team with Maxwell and defeat whatever is pulling the strings of the Don't Starve world, being thrown impossible obstacles to overcome by whatever is controlling the world to stop you from finding out the mistery. Can we get some hint from the devs or something?

    A tool to convert prexisting animations into spriter projects? That's absolutely awesome! Where can i get that tool? It's like a thing i've waited for a really long time now to see how Klei did stuff and learn. Well, by that being said, then i agree with having new animations for the Beanclops. Man, awesome. Just awesome.

    About the Beanclops, i saw Lord_Battal say that it is better if he is animated from scratch. Are you sure about this guys? The fact he is based on the deerclops and uses nearly the same atlas would make it better if he simply used the normal deerclops atlas, i'm sure it's possible to get a reskin that can achieve what you guys are aiming for. Animating a complete boss is a long and difficult task.

    Hi, this is Irontaco. I was offered by debugman18 in back in March of this year to work as an artist for the Up&Away mod, unfortunately i got way too focused on my own huge DS mod with Malacath so i was not in the community for a long time. Just now i logged in to ask for help in the Modding forum and noticed his PM. I can do stuff as an artist and as an animator (Spriter and Flash) I was really interested in the progress of U&A, suggesting things and looking at how much of a good job you guys had done! I'm kinda lost now though on what's new and what's the plan. Here are some things i was able to put up with my super neato friend Malacath as examples of what i do (excuse the glitched char atlas): The christmas stuff is from this week, the tree is from last year's halloween contest, and the other things are from the beggining of this year. and some recent projectile thing Sorry if i filled the page haha. Something is really breaking this topic page for me (closes the tab) so i dont think it matters) So yes, that's all! I'd be glad to do work for U&A on my free time (and when i finish christmas thing).
  5. Yeah you read it right. If you want to join just PM me with a few of your character details or post here and you'll be on the next turn! If you have seen any tennis threads before then you'll know how this works. This works via making an story by making a few panels of a comic, then the next person does a few more, then it goes like that. A few rules: -You can use your own character, and using the already existing characters of Don't Starve is also allowed. -No OP stuff. You can have a few supernatural abilities as long as it makes sense with the character and you don't overdo it. -Wait for your turn. You'll get it eventually. If the next person skips you're allowed to do your turn. -You can control some actions of other people's character. But plainly killing them is not allowed. Remember to keep the attitude of them! -Killing your own character is allowed, and can be used as a way to quit the tennis. -You have two days to get your part done. The turn will be given to the next person if you don't finish on time. -Do not change situations too quickly. It tends to get confusing and to make the story get senseless. People participating so far: -Irontaco -BlazingIce26 So yeah i'll start by giving some details about my character. Name: Will Age: 32 Origin: Italian descent, lives in america. Personality: He has a warm, social attitude that tends to mask his depressed mind. Abilities: Extended knowledge about the Don't Starve world due to the time he has been trapped in there. Knows how to persuade people. Appareance: Caucasian man with black hair directed to the side, a slight stubble, and a big, square-ish jaw, he has a underbite. He tends to wear a long, light brown coat (colour similar to the beefalo) with black pants underneat. He keeps a life amulet in his pocket that his grandfather gave to him back when he was young, he doesn't know the powers of the amulet. below the coat he wears a grey shirt. The coat's arms tend to cover his hands most of the time. A little backstory: Will used to have a small shop somewhere in America, until he was trapped in the Don't starve world by Maxwell after promising him fortune. He is one of the first victim's of Maxwell''s traps and has spent a lot of his life in the Don't Starve world, he knows Maxwell very well and Maxwell hasn't found a way to dispose of him, yet. And then the first turn:
  6. We make them, of course. In turns. I make one, the next person makes another, the next person, etc etc and it loops.
  7. How about a little bump? << I'm gonna tweak a few of the rules probably.
  8. Will is not dead though. He's just in the dark and nothing has happened to him yet. Also about the "limiting creativity" thing i do not want to force people to be less creative it's mostly so people can think up of some other way to collaborate to the story without it plainly being taking a cannon out of their pocket.
  9. Will prefers the nomadic lifestyles over staying in a base, while he does have a place that he could call his "central base" he doesn't spend everyday there. You know, maybe he could have been travelling and the night caught him before he could return. Who knows. I'm also trying to avoid "hammer space" as much as possible. You saw he had no backpack/anything on him while he was sitting near the campfire and pulled a burning stick out of the fire to use as a torch. It'd be also be incredibly hard to set a stick on fire while being in complete, pitch black darkness.
  10. I use a genius brand old drawing tablet along with Paint tool SAI Sorry about that dude :C
  11. Well while i wait for somebody i'll do another page. it's quite high res you might want to open it on another tab. (EDIT: actually nvm tinypic resized it <<')
  12. Yeah, you can do it on paper too, doesn't matter.
  13. Look if it makes no sense then you shouldn't. Let's not derail the thread any longer.
  14. I was sort of thinking of it having to be related to the Don't Starve atmosphere so that's a tad too random. But not really you don't have to be good, just enough for it to be able to be understood. And of course you have to draw since that's what an art tennis is about.
  15. Aww, alright. It'd be neat to have...somebody, anybody, here. I guess.
  16. I was wondering if this should go in the roleplay section instead. It's a tad confusing since technically its not a regular roleplay with only text.
  17. Uh, i used to have an old gallery which i sort of stopped updating and it quickly died down and it is so deep down in the forums i will not bother myself with bumping it. You're free to browse through it, though. (Keep in mind i improved a lot since i uploaded those old drawings in that old gallery.) http://forums.kleientertainment.com/index.php?/topic/13648-irontacos-box-of-suffering-and-random-doodles/ Right now i mostly do art for mods and ocassional, quick sketches. Feel free to ask me to draw something. Uh, here, have something i'm doing for a big mod. He's a merchant or something. He's still a WIP. I'm still tweaking some stuff so he looks more in-style with the game, suggestions and feedback would be appreciated. (In-game he's not fully coloured yet since i have to fix stuff and it was mostly to see how it blended with the rest of the game.) Expect me to upload random sketches and projects in general, right now i don't have much stored since i reformatted my HDD and didn't keep any drawings around.
  18. Yo here's a sort-of-not-art thing. (well it's mod art) Progress with the merchant guy and stuff, he now has animations but they're tests and he looks a tad glitchy. But a lot better than the first test. I'm remaking his hand becuase it looks pretty bad. Once again suggestions and feedback are appreciated. Expect more actual comics and sketches coming soon i have been so busy lately.
  19. So yeah...Anybody want a little quick sketch? A cup of tea? Anything?
  20. Thank you, he's gonna do a bunch of different stuff and when i get the animations done i'll post a little video. Also, i need some feedback, a friend of mine suggested that this merchant should have a leafy beard as seen here: I was wondering what design to use really.
  21. Worms are ridiculous

    I was walking in the ruins as Maxwell and i hadn't seen the completely obvious glowing fruit, so i walked over it, i got hit by the worm and inmediately died, i was lucky to have touched a touchstone before. I sort of grabbed a torch and quickly went to get my stuff back and kill the worm.
  22. A Clever, Snappy Art Thread Title

    Uh, you usually need to have a @ before the username. Like this. @Irontaco @Sarcosuchus @Pinecone Nice art, man, i like your style.
